Homestead Barn Hop #59

“Cultivating the Homestead Community”

Welcome to the 59th edition of the Homestead Barn Hop!

This hop is hosted by The Prairie Homestead, along with two other fantastic homesteading gals:

Amy from Homestead Revival and Kendra from New Life on a Homestead.

We encourage you to stop by every Monday and share your latest homesteading posts with us. From cooking to animals to gardening, we want to hear what’s been happening at your homestead this week!


With summer getting closer, that means only one thing– ice cream season is coming! There is nothing, and I mean nothin’, better than homemade ice cream. I think this recipe from Jill over at Paths of Wrighteousness is the perfect homestead ice cream recipe, since 3 out of the 4 ingredients could easily be produced on a homestead. (And the 4th, vanilla extract, can be made at home too!) So be sure to head over to Jill’s blog to check out this simple but decadent, ice cream recipe!

Now, on to the business of this week’s Hop!

Some Simple Guidelines:

1. Remember to provide a link back to the Homestead Barn Hop in the post that you share. Feel free to grab the banner at the top of this post, if you would like, and use it to link back to us!

2. Please link to a specific post, not your blog’s main page.

3. If you don’t have a blog, share your latest homestead updates in a comment on this post!

4. We, the hosts of the Barn Hop, reserve the right to remove any link that we deem inappropriate or offensive. We will err on the side of caution.

    Thanks, Jill! Homemade vanilla extract is on my list of things to learn someday soon. When my big bottle of McCormick is gone, I plan on making my own. Hope everyone enjoys the ice cream. :) ~Jill

    Thanks for hosting, Jill! That ice cream looks awesome – I’ve never met an ice cream I didn’t like….except the one bomb I made with stevia. LOL

    I’ve linked up three:
    1. Mama’s Sausage Macaroni
    2. Hodgepodge Crock Pot Chicken
    3. Buying a car for Better Fuel Economy – is it worth it??

    Thanks for hosting!

    I shared a post about commercial eggs versus pastured eggs and a post about healthy fats to love that your body needs!

    It’s my first link up here and I can’t wait to visit the other blogs but 1st I’ve gotta go catch a horse. Love this link up, thanks for including me. I shared my 5yr old’s “Dirt cake”.
